Instant Pot Palak Paneer As the granddaughter of a prominent landowner and farmer from the heart of Punjab, India, please do not refer to Saag as Palak. My family spent our years living in America viciously stringing vacation days together to visit my grandparents in the haweli where my father grew up. To even get to his childhood village, you have to drive your way through fields and fields of bright green and yellow-topped mustard green fields. I've been on a tractor in those same fields and can still smell that freshly-cut aroma from the tender stems. When cooked down with spices and some key ingredients,...

Eggplant-Zucchini Quinoa Salad Bonjour de Leysin ... Hello from Leysin, a small Alpine village in the heart of the Swiss Alps. It's a tiny alcove at the eastern end of Lake Geneva. It's my second summer here bringing my girls for summer camp. They just love it and this summer, I decided to say an emphatic 'Yes!' when my girls' summer school program asked me to teach a few cooking classes. I needed something to help me get back to what's important, and renting an Airbnb in the mountains, spending time here cooking, shooting pictures, swimming, and learning French daily - completely alone...

Black Bean Soup with Cumin and Roasted Jalapeno

Black Bean Soup with Cumin and Roasted Jalapeno Years of trying have not helped my endeavors to make the perfect pot of black bean soup. But, the other day I was determined to give it another shot. After all, these beans are incredibly healthy for you. A one-cup serving of cooked black beans provides (in daily recommended values): 227 calories. 15 grams protein. 15 grams fiber. Stats that even my omnivore of a husband cannot ignore.  So, I thought about it all day and then got busy. I wanted to roast the peppers and corn. Super easy to do, and adds another layer of flavor.  I also thought about...

Hyderabadi Vegetarian Biryani with Tart Dried Cherries Hyderabad is the capital of two states in Southern India and is known as a center for India's pearl and diamond trade. And, biryani.

One is to place your raw, marinated meat and other ingredients in a clay pot and seal it - opening only when perfectly cooked (this takes some serious practice). The other is to cook your ingredients partially and then put them together to finish up...
